Research Roles in Frankfurt
Equity, credit, fixed income and economics research roles are all available in Frankfurt, on both the sell side for domestic German securities houses and on the buy side working for both domestic and global Asset Managers, as well as in credit rating agencies. Average salaries are competitive with global financial centres, with Research Analysts earning an average of €65,000 basic salary (before bonuses).
Securities research is an intellectually demanding job where the fundamental demand is for a solid understanding of finance, accounting, economics and the basis of valuation. However, over the last 10 years, the development of quantitative investment and the increased use of database technology has freed analysts from repetitive tasks of data gathering and processing, and allowed them to take more of a role in marketing and communication of their ideas. Today's successful research analysts have skills not too far removed from those of securities sales professionals.
At present, recruitment for research roles in Frankfurt is driven more by the asset management sector than the banking sector, with credit research roles most sought after. These are generally demanding roles requiring a high degree of commitment, and since Frankfurt is at the centre of the European securities markets, analysts are generally expected to spend a lot of time travelling.
